  • 1. To make the bread crumbs, rub the bread vigorously between your palms until coarse crumbs form. The cumbs will be unevenly shaped. Melt the butter in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add the crumbs and cook, stirring, until the crumbs are coated with butter, but not browned (the butter keeps the crumbes from burning, browns them nicely, and makes a great crunch). Transfer the crumbs to a bowl.
  • 2. To make the macaroni, preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish with 1 tablespoon butter. In a pot of boiling water, cook the macaroni according to the package directions, drain and return to the pot.
  • 3. Place the cheese, milk, remaining 2 tablespoons butter, salt, and pepper in the top of a double boiler or bowl set over a pot of boiling water. Cook, covered, until the cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Simmer the mixture uncovered, stirring, until smooth, about 1 minute more. Add the cheese to the pot of cooked macaroni and stir to coat.
  • 4, Transfer the macaroni to the prepared casserole. Top with the bread crumbs.
  • 5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
